Cygnet Agrocompany dairy branch yielded 5.5 mln l of milk
The output indicators of the Cygnet Agrocompany dairy direction in 2018 totalled 5.5 million litres of milk.
“Cygnet’s dairy branch marks the end of the year with record numbers. Compared to last year, milk yield was significantly increased and the total figures this year amounted to 5.5 million litres of milk,” the company informed on its Facebook page.
The uprise in production resulted from the increased productivity of cattle. This represents Cygnet Agrocompany’s strategy.
The company's current dairy herd amounts to 605 milk cows, which is almost three times less than in 2012 (1549 milk cows). At the same time, milk yields rose to 9.09 thousand litres per 1 milk cow a year.
The company notes that this growth was due to the particular focus on the selection and diet, besides the company uses the bulls of the American selection.
